Happiness is a valid goal.
It is neither soft nor flaky,
but is the right of everyone who works hard and sows good seeds.
For what is achievement without happiness?
What is attainment without fulfillment?
When the restlessness in your soul comes,
when your accomplishments seem empty and pointless,
when loneliness stalks you,
and disillusionment beclouds your vision,
may you find happiness.
Do not negotiate your happiness
for things and possessions.
Do not lose sight of your peace
because of the distractions of life.
Remember the little and big things
that bring you joy
and return to them.
